(San Francisco, CA — May 12, 2022) — Headlands Center for the Arts is pleased to announce its fifteenth annual Benefit Art Auction, with bidding taking place online and in-person at the historic grounds of the Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture. The 2022 Benefit Art Auction will feature both Silent and Live Auctions and showcase work from over 60 partnering artists and galleries, including Candice Lin, Sadie Barnette, and Didier William.
Reflecting Headlands’ enduring commitment to community engagement, the organization has planned a series of dynamic events to accompany this occasion, which also coincides with its 40th anniversary year. Beginning with a kick-off celebration on May 20 at Fort Mason, the Bay Area community will be invited to participate in hands-on art making, preview the auctioned works through May 31, and engage with site-specific installations by Headlands artist alumni Carole Kim, Annie Albagli, and Anja Ulfeldt.
The celebration will culminate on May 31 with a live auction led by Phillips auction house auctioneer Rebekah Bowling. This ticketed closing event, also at Fort Mason, will feature DJ sets by Vetiver’s Andy Cabic and a special multimedia installation and performance by Headlands alum Carole Kim.
“Headlands’ Benefit Art Auction represents our steadfast commitment to fostering and supporting creativity. Headlands is a place for making and experiencing art, and we are honored to partner with these artists—so many of whom are Headlands alumni—as well as our auction committee, the supporting galleries and sponsors, and in-kind partners to make this event happen. It is a celebration of the creative process, and we are grateful to everyone involved,” said Mari Robles, Executive Director of Headlands Center for the Arts.
A longstanding tradition at Headlands, the annual Benefit Art Auction provides crucial support to Headlands’ heralded artists and public programs. Contributions made through the auction signify a direct investment in the creative lifeblood of the Bay Area, where Headlands has long acted as a catalyst for artistic experimentation and innovation. This year’s collaboration with Phillips will elevate Headlands’ mission and invite new audiences to become part of the organization’s blossoming future.
